    Of all of the wonderful pictures of Charice out there, the one at the top of this article is still my favorite. It really shows her natural, youthful beauty. Beautiful girl (or I guess I should say woman now) with the greatest voice in the world. Keep it going all the way to the top, Charice.

    @jimFan155 – I am Filipino, but when I saw the Hitman, Star King and Celine duet videos, though I felt some national pride for her, I sensed with the enormity of her talent and its inexplicable impact on us, that she transcended national and cultural boundaries. Hers is the all-too-familiar and universal narrative of the underdog that we identify with and root for, albeit armed with an other-worldly talent, something we normally associate with fairy tales. Like the Star King judge said that she made the stage look small, her talent is too big for our artificial boundaries, be they national, cultural or even faith-based.

    And I am not really surprised by the naysayers who continue to ply their trade, because that narrative of her as an underdog continues in more ways than apparent to us, including breaking in into heretofore uncharted territories in the entertainment industry. But we know she will eventually overcome these with her solid talent and character, and her narrative will have served its purpose of inspiring all of us, who will be rooting for her all the way.

    Being Chinese, I am proud that Charice is Asian. But truth be told, I was blown away by her talent and stage presence when I saw the Star King performance. The fact that she was Filipino really didn’t factor into it for me. She could have been from anywhere, been any color and if I saw that performance my opinion would have been the same – I may have just witnessed the greatest entertainer I have ever seen in my life.

    Then following up watching all her videos and reading some of the comments, I was not too happy to learn of the crab mentality from some of her fellow countrymen. In addition, her being successful does not necessarily mean the doors will automatically open for Asians and Filipinos. Of course it will help but you have to have the talent and charisma to pull it off. I have waited 60 years to see an entertainer like Charice, so to say I will feel the same way about the next Asian star – I don’t know. I would compare he/she to Charice and that type of comparison would not really be fair, but maybe unavoidable. I fear the crab mentality would surface again for the next one.

    But for me it comes down to talent and star quality. If you have the “X” factor, people will recognize it and hopefully you wil get a fair shot at making it.
